I am about to end my 6-day stay at the Maduzi Hotel in Bangkok and I have nothing but praises for this oasis of calm in the middle of busy Asoke. I initially had some minor problems with the first room that was assigned to me but a transfer to an adjacent room quickly solved the glitch. It was smooth sailing from thereon.
This intimate property is small by any standards but Maduzi's size is perhaps its biggest draw. I have been a regular visitor to Bangkok since 1985 and throughout my countless visits, I have had the privilege of staying in almost all types of establishments across the city. But my most memorable stays were in small, charming properties like Maduzi where guests are treated on a more personal, intimate level by the genteel staff. The public areas of the hotel are elegantly decorated, similar perhaps to how affluent Thais (with impeccable taste) will decorate their homes. The bedrooms are large, the bathrooms are commodious, and the huge beds supremely comfortable. All creature comforts are provided in the rooms, even a great-looking coffee maker which apparently is not very difficult to operate! Alternatively, the hotel offers complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby, as well as small cakes and snacks throughout the day. The gourmet breakfast that was included in the room rate I paid is simple but filling, and as expected from this design hotel, also beautifully-presented. To stay in shape, the fitness center at Maduzi is well-equipped despite its modest size. Serious runners (or leisurely joggers like me) will also appreciate the hotel's close proximity to Benjakiti Park which offers an excellent running path as well as picturesque views of the lake and city skyline.
Finally, the location of the hotel is very convenient to both Bangkok's efficient Skytrain and underground subway network. The nearby Terminal 21 mall is a very large, sometimes disconcerting property which may give visitors an idea of how seriously the Thais take their retail therapy. Further afield, malls, boutiques, street hawkers, and restuarants beckon the traveller to explore this fascinating city.
For jaded travellers who have had enough of big hotels, the Maduzi is an excellent option to consider when visiting Bangkok. It scores very high on location, quality of accommodations, and level of service. It should therefore come as no surprise to me if guests at this hotel will only be too happy to return one day.
